Working Out: The Bane of Our Existence!

There was a small whisper in the back of my mind all day that kept saying, “You need to workout. You need to workout.” Of course, as usual, I ignored it. I came up with any excuse in the book:

-I had to clean

-I was hungry

-Just after this episode

-I need a nap

-Just one more episode

-I just ate, I have to wait an hour

After many hours of finding a way around working out, I just made myself get up and do my yoga practice, and what do you know? I feel amazing! Isn’t it funny how we will go out of our way to avoid the smallest workout routine, however, once we have finally finished it, we feel so much better!? I am glad I finally made myself get up and Yoga! πŸ™‚

  1. I got back to regular workouts this week, after some holiday laziness. It really does feel amazing once you get back to it! I changed up my workout today in order to increase my calorie burn and begin toning up my tummy. It was hard, I felt like I was gargling my heart in my throat before it was all over, I burned over 600 calories in less than an hour…and I felt amazing. πŸ™‚ It is always worth it, once we get past our excuses! πŸ™‚

  2. Yay for you! I’m one of those weirdoes that loves to workout. I didn’t always feel this way though. However, once I saw how well physical activity aided in controlling my anxiety and increasing my concentration, I became slightly addicted. Some days, I work out morning and evening. Since I can’t tolerate ADHD meds, it’s a natural way to burn off my crazy level of energy. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m finding, in my old age, that it’s increasingly hard to make time to exercise, but it’s increasingly easy to trick myself into doing it. I like to work at a standing desk for a few hours a day, park at the far end of parking lots, walk my kids to school when it’s not so cold, stuff like that. If you’ll pardon the shameless plug, I did up a post on standing desks a couple months back — some days this is the only way I can manage to burn a few calories. http://thecountyfare.net/2014/11/16/benefit-of-a-standing-desk-youre-exercising-without-realizing-it/

  4. I love this! The immediate reward of feeling incredible after a workout is great but thinking about how much my body will thank me in a few months has become more than enough motivation for me to put my big-girl-workout pants on and get it over with. My sister put up a new inspirational poster on our workout cabinet that says “I still have so far to go…. but I have already come so far and I’m proud of that.”
